iPhones 11 Run Over Powerful Androids in Performance Tests

During the introduction of the new iPhones , Apple exposed some graphics (without numbers) that promised performance for the A13 processor far superior to the more powerful Snapdragon chips featured in top of the line Androids. Now the first more detailed tests of performance show that the company was not lying.


For starters, the tests showed a 20% performance gain compared with testing with the A12 installed on iPhones XS and XR, released last year. But in some of the benchmarks, the A13 practically doubles the scoring of devices with the Snapdragon 855+ processor, Qualcomm's most powerful today.


As you can see, in the Speedometer test, the new iPhones had an average score of 157, while Asus' most powerful Android on the list, ROG Phone 2, only got 71.5 points. It's less than half of what Apple got.

This advantage is not consistent across all tests, however. Some point to a more discreet advantage over Snapdragon phones. 3D Mark Sling Shot 3.1 points graphically over Android competitors, but not as high as seen in Speedometer. iPhone 11 average 8,600 points in the peak performance experiment, while Asus' ROG Phone 2 leads Androids at 7,800 points.





There are some issues where the A13 doesn't do so well. Compared to the A12, the processor sucks considerably more power at peak performance times, with 1 Watt more than its predecessor, which may make it more susceptible to performance limitations due to thermal issues.


In terms of autonomy, Apple made some big leaps, as the battery used to be an Achilles heel of iPhones. In addition to increasing component capacity , the A13 was also thought to do more with less power, and this was reflected in testing. The iPhone 11 Pro Max and iPhone 11 came in second and third place in the ranking, with iPhone 11 Pro in fifth place. The rest of the Top 5 consists of ROG Phone 2, in the first position, and Huawei Mate 20, in the fourth.
